Leah Lopez Cardenas

Growing up with a pack of dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters, gerbils, and even a lizard (or two), Leah has been a pet parent for all kinds. With 9+ years of experience in the realm of SEO, content marketing, and digital strategy, as senior SEO editor for Daily Paws she finds joy nerding out by discovering what's trending with other pet lovers, solving problems, and finding the answers to questions like, "why DO cats like boxes?"
